Owning a cat can be fun, but be careful. Common household items can be dangerous to a cat. While everyone has seen images of kittens playing with yarn, string of any kind can be swallowed by a cat, causing blockage and death.

Also keep your cat away from chocolate, alcohol, lilies, grapes, and raisins. All of these items can get your cat sick so make sure you either keep these items away from your cat or don’t bring them in your house in the first place.

By keeping certain items out of your cat’s reach, you can insure that your cat will be around for many more years to torment and boss you around for as long as possible.
